As is tradition, the February issue of @BritishVogue brings readers the first distillation of the new collections, and as any fashion watcher will have seen at the SS22 shows, the rise of the African model felt, at last, like a permanent revolution. No longer just one or two dark-skinned girls mingled backstage, but a host of top models took a meaningful, substantial and equal place among the most successful women working in fashion today. It means so much to me to see it. Under the watchful, passionate eye of photographer Rafael Pavarotti, we created a little magic with two special covers. See the full story in the new issue, on newsstands Tuesday 18 January, and click the link in my bio to read contributing editor @FunmiFetto’s article in full.
